Menstrual Cups

Review – OrganiCup

Organicup-box

The OrganiCup box has the instructions printed on the inside of the box – which is cool.  The pouch it comes with is a very stiff feeling cotton.  Almost like a canvass.  I wonder if it will soften up with washing?  But I guess it will be durable 🙂

These cups came squashed to fit into the box , but bounced back into a round shape after a few minutes of being free.

They have a stem that is a little thicker than the long thin stick stems of cups like the Sckoon, Si-bell, Juju etc.  But not as thick as the tube stems.  They have really thick grip lines on them.

Testing them out

I found the stem design was very comfortable, I couldn’t feel it at all.  It’s also not stretchy (like some thin stick stems can be), so pulling down on the stem brought the cup down, without just stretching the stem.   Because the stem is a bit shorter than other cups, in the smaller cup in particular the stem was about at the limit I could easily reach up, so for that aspect I preferred the larger size because it was a bit easier for me to reach.

The smooth outside was easy to clean and comfortable for insertion/removal.  White frosted “peachskin” type feeling silicone.  Quite squishy. The slightly firmer silicone on this cup made it open slightly better than the Si-bell and other softer cups.  Overall I like this cup a lot.
